Charming North Mission Beach Cottage with FRESH ZEN FEEL - beautiful quiet court

Property type cottage



About the property

ONE bedroom/ONE bath with bay views

Enjoy this PET-FRIENDLY, classic vintage ONE bedroom/ONE bath cottage with views from inside and outside the property. Great location! Two houses away from the bay, 200 steps to ocean. LIGHT AND AIRY, newly decorated and clean! Full kitchen- microwave, refrigerator, gas stove. One parking place in garage (which is priceless in MB) spacious outdoor patio, fenced yard, outdoor dining table. Flat screen TV, cable, DVD, beach towels and chairs. Unlike South Mission, it's close to restaurants and shops. The bayside is much quieter than the ocean side which tends to be noisier and rowdier especially in the summer. It's also prettier at twilight and at night since you can see the twinkling lights across the bay. The property is not sandwiched in like many houses in the interior courts. Very peaceful!!

About Susan

Being superbusy with my career, family, and endless list of chores, I often forget to b-r-e-a-t-h-e, relax, and take in the good. My goal is that Toulon Beach Cottage will provide you with a peaceful beautiful environment so you and your loved ones can enjoy many happy memories and timeless moments together. After all ... isn't that what vacations are all about?

Susan purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Susan chose San Diego County

Great location! Once you're here, you'll appreciate the location even more.

It''s also a VINTAGE cottage! It's a bit rustic which adds to its charm. Slowly all these treasures are getting replaced with high-rises with granite countertops.

What makes this cottage unique

Pet friendly! I love traveling with my "puppies" so would love to offer that option to you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you, Susan for a wonderful stay. My husband and me and our little 2 year old girl spent 4 nights in that very charming beach house. We loved that place so much. Susan responded promptly all our questions. Even without mentioning she took care that we had a baby crib ready. That was awesome! Susan was also very flexible with a late check out. That really helped us to get ready for traveling. Thank you so much! Highly recommended!

Adorable cottage in great location

  • 4 of 5

Love the location. Just enough for the two of us. When we awoke to no hot water one morning, the owner quickly contacted the handy man (who confirmed a storm had turned off the water heater) and even sent her housekeeper over to be sure we got the pilot light relit. Bed is a little soft, which bothered my husband's back but not mine. Would definitely recommend this cottage to others (and in fact already have! ).

Beach Cottage Fab

  • 4 of 5

Susan was very easy to work with and responded to all my questions. There was a slight mix up on the reservation but was fixed by the next day. Location, location, location is the best description for this vintage beach cottage. Everything you need to make it comfortable for your stay.

I love that it was pet friendly and a small fenced yard. It is perfect for a single, couple or small family.

Thank you Susan for a wonderful stay.

Great location with some challenges

  • 2 of 5

We have literally rented around the world from VRBO in the past 12 years since we became aware of the company. We have had great luck everywhere. We depend on the pictures and info on the site but most importantly we depend on the reviews. The reviews on this beach house have been highly inflated. There are a few positives: Susan’s cottage is in a wonderful location in the Mission Bay area. It is “cute” in a vintage way and it is somewhat inexpensive. But, it is not deserving of five stars. It is true that you get what you pay for. The challenges ranged from poor communication, to headache quality smells at night, to pipes that were disconnected, to a shower that is corroded, to an external gas pipe that appears unsafe, to a garage structure that is a mess, to a patio that is uneven and piled with sand, to untrimmed plants and pots with dead plants. We planned a month in this cottage and spent three weeks. After the second week when Susan returned from her own vacation she graciously offered to reimburse us for the last week. We took her up on that. Recommended for short term rentals only.

Charming vintage cottage with a glimpse of the Bay

  • 4 of 5

Tiny, very original, charming beach cottage that oozes old time authenticity. Nothing fancy but really comfortable and cozy! Really nice that it's dog friendly too. Owner very responsive and helpful. Having a dedicated parking spot is invaluable. My 2 adult daughters and I really enjoyed our Girls Weekend, walking to cafes, the beach, and the wonderful Catamaran Spa.

This was a clean small little place. Very cozy and great for 2 people. The reviews and picture are what is is. Patio was very quit and enjoyable to enjoy breakfast and dinner from. The location was perfect to everything we needed as we never pulled car out once parked first day!
